ProQuest LLC, D.Ed. Dissertation, Capella University
This action research study was the creation, implementation, and evaluation of an orientation for adjunct faculty members. The study included an adjunct orientation implemented as a form of professional development and inclusion for adjunct faculty members. The adjunct orientation took place at the research site, a large community technical college, in August 2013. The adjunct faculty participated in a focus group interview in November 2013 to determine if the orientation was beneficial to them during the fall 2013 semester. This study involved asking participants to identify what they learned in the orientation and how they used the information in the subsequent semester. This study also attempted to understand if an orientation helped adjunct faculty members feel more integrated into the division and the college. This study discovered that the implementation of an orientation enhanced the inclusion and knowledge of adjunct faculty members.
